Meet Hercules

Click on the photo for a better look. Hercules as I have named him is a neighborhood kitty that travels through out our street. He got his name after I shot this picture of him on the neighbors old truck with the mudflaps that had the name Hercules on them.

Rest Stop

The Thunderbird Inn is directly across the street from the Pantry. Built probably sometime in the 50's and it still has pink and light blue bathrooms. Looks like they were having a problem with one of the Canales. Canales are roof drains that help drain the water from the flat roofs.

The Spot

The Pantry is where yesterdays delicious burritos came from. They used to only serve breakfast and lunch but are now serving dinner. We are wanting to try it but everytime I say I am going to try something new I keep going back to what I love.

A Santa Fe Breakfast

Breakfast in Santa Fe usually means a breakfast burrito at your favorite spot. I usually prefer the two egg, bacon and Green Chili burrito with beans shown here. My partner's is the Red Chili one at the top of the photo with potatoes. I just might have to go out for another one today!

Color of the Day.

Facing the engine from yesterdays post was this Santa Fe Southern engine. By luck I also caught this bike rider wear a coat matching the yellow from the engine. Now what are the chances? Happy Saturday!

Ride to Santa Fe.

I was out walking after our last snowfall and was taken by the color of this engine. Usually the snow is so bright that it tones everything down in comparison but these colors were shining bright that day. Happy Weekend everyone!

My Shadow

Have you ever watched a cloud just float slowly by? This one was floating by one day casting it's shadows on the mountains below. Take about a good destressing moment.

Looking Downtown

The skies were gray today and tomorrow we are expecting more snow. I am hoping it won't come. I can say now that I am ready for the Spring. This is a view looking into downtown on Lincoln Street.

Reach Out

I love this old dead tree. It looks like it trying to reach out and touch something.
When we first arrived at Tent Rocks the sky was not this blue but as the day progressed it started to become this rich blue.

Twin Tents

As you start to climb up after walking through Slot Canyon you will see what I like to refer to as the Twin Tents. These two see to have very distinct points to them. One actually looks more like a pyramid sitting on top. Have great start to your week everyone.

Spring Equinox?

We got snowed on again! I have a feeling we're going to see more. Everyone is ready for Spring but they may have to put on the brakes and wait a little longer. I'll have more from Tent Rocks tomorrow.

Looking In

This is the view as you climb up above Slot Canyon at Tent Rocks. I would have loved to have hiked here after a snow fall. Speaking of snow, it's snow again here tonight. Got to love Santa Fe!

Looking Up

This is one of the views of the tent shaped rocks from Slot Canyon. People must find them pretty inspiring. There was even a guy jogging through here then stopping to write some music. Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Branching Out

In the canyon of Tent Rocks there are a few trees that seem to be growing on the outside of the rocks, roots and all. They are more beautiful in person.

Balancing Act

These rocks can be seen at the beginning of the hike through the slot canyon of Tent Rocks park. I would not want to be around if they ever fell. Oh and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hike Under the Tents

Tent Rocks also known as "Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument" is a great place for a hike. About 40 miles southwest of Santa Fe near the Cochiti Pueblo you can walk amongst these tent rock formations. For more information click here.I will be posting different shots this week from our hike.

Taking a Ride.

While out on a ride heading back to Santa Fe we saw this Amtrak train heading south. When I see a train I like to imagine where the passengers are going to. Time to start a new week. Have a good one everyone.

Drive Me.

This truck is always parked on my street. The owner must be a neighbor. One things alot of people love here is old trucks. The color almost matches the color of the sky. I think it would be fun to drive.

Shooting on Canyon Road.

While walking down Canyon Road I saw this photographer shooting in the area. Canyon Road is a great place for people watching and taking some great photos all year around.

Party Time

No this party was not for me although today does happen to be my birthday. We had just arrived at the Flying Star when some woman came in like a hurricane just to set this up before the party guests arrived. Soon this table was full of people have a great time. Wishing you all a great time this weekend!

Seeing Red II

Looking up once again I notice this galleries signage on each of the windows. Maybe I am becoming more sensitive to the color. It does look great against the blue sky.

Seeing Red

I have never seen a shrub with Red branches until I walked past this one on Museum Hill. It's a first for me. Maybe I need to travel more.

Skylight Art

Now as many times as I have been to one of our local malls I have never noticed this artwork up by the skylights. It taught me to keep my eyes a little more wide open. Here's hoping for a fast week.

Watching Clouds Roll By

Don't you enjoy those peaceful moments when your relaxing at home and letting the world just pass you by? The other day with big clouds in the sky I did just that, kicked back and shot from the chair I was sitting in. Enjoy your Sunday!

Raven Shaman

While walking downtown I saw this Raven Shaman in a store window. I just might have to start a new collection.

End of the Week!

As night fell the other evening the sky looked like it was filled with clouds made of Cotton Candy. Nothing like an evening sky here in New Mexico. Wishing you all a happy weekend.

Just Keep Shopping

At the far end of town you can find a shopping experience of a different kind. The Fashion Outlets of Santa Fe. If your looking for a bargain it is the place to shop.

How Much Is That Doggie?

Now this is a different purse. Maybe for the dog lover or maybe for someone who just wants to turn heads. This one could be found at one of the boutiques downtown.

Painted Wall

This is one of my favorite painted walls in town. Located in the Railyard district it greets you as you enter the parking lot. The bight colors make you smile even if you can't find a parking space.
